Ines del Castillo offers a strong narration of this audiobook, an engrossing story of a family separated by actual and emotional borders. Framed within the context of teenage Talia's flight from a reform school, the novel recounts the circumstances of the young heroine's birth and the struggles her parents faced fleeing Colombia for the U.S. Del Castillo's brisk pace suits the narrative, and her various character voices are strong and believable. She carries the listener from past to present seamlessly, even when the story includes historical details or folktales. Hers is the careful, sympathetic voice that one needs as these characters navigate an often-dangerous world. The author's narrative style can seem aloof at times, but del Castillo's patient voice bridges that distance effectively. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
